 Spring Creek Cemetery (Barnhardt Cemetery), Gainesville, Cooke, Texas, United States of America


This cemetery is located 6 miles south of Gainesville on I 35 and exit west onto Spring Creek Rd. The cemetery is located beside Spring Creek Church. A historical marker reads:
"The earliest burial on this site is that of infant Mary C. Underwood, who died in 1875. Another infant, identified only as "Newton's child", was interred on what became known as "Stranger's Row" in 1882. The following year, John P. and Sarah Jane (Ball) Barnhart donated this land to the newly formed Spring Creek Cemetery Association. Among the pioneers and their descendants interred here is Maleta Stapp Kleiser ( 1816 - 1902 ), whose father served in the Revolutionary War. Travis Anderson ( 1891 - 1918 ) died while in training during World War I and Roy Speake Jr. ( 1918 - 1944 ) died in the Allied Invasion of Normandy during WWII. The Spring Creek Cemetery Foundation was organized in 1972 to maintain the historic graveyard. Spring Creek Cemetery is a chronicle of Cooke County."
This cemetery is also referred to in old records as Barnhardt Cemetery.
